Disney Girl Challenge: Sally

Disney Girl Challenge: Sally

So the story goes, Tim Burton, director of such twisted classics as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas, didn’t jive particularly well with the Disney powers that be during his tenure as an animator at the House of Mouse. I don’t think that’s too surprising, as every single thing about the guy, from the subjects he gravitated towards to his own personal style, was the complete opposite of all that Disney held near and dear.

So they showed him the door, wished him well and shelved his remaining projects, certainly not anticipating that some years later one of those projects, a creepy-sweet little stop motion picture called The Nightmare Before Christmas, would once again see the light of day, immediately becoming a much beloved cult classic for a generation of kids (and adults) looking for a bit of dark in their animated movies.

Today there’s not a bit of (legit) Nightmare merchandise that doesn’t come plastered with the Disney logo, so I think it’s fair to say time heals all wounds. It also helps that Tim Burton went on to direct one of top 10 highest grossing movies of all time under the Disney banner, 2010’s Alice in Wonderland. As AC/DC might say, money talks!

These are the third set of Nightmare-inspired nails I’ve done, this time with an emphasis on the pattern of Sally’s adorable patchwork dress.
